See, there’s been a lot of talk around these parts about taking care of yourself, and we’re (as a site) pretty open about talking about sex. (Thank you, Papers-are-Patient! Ms. Vagina Science!

A New Year of Sex

Even though we understand why New Year’s resolutions are not beneficial to or beloved by everyone, both of us really enjoy them.

Lunchtime Poll 1/4

This sort of goes hand-in-hand with yesterday’s question about resolutions. What do you want to be doing this time next year? What do you want to change about your life in the next 365 days or so? If you had a crystal ball, what do you think Janaury 2012 will hold? How can you make […]
